Dive into Operation Riptide, featuring new maps, an overhauled mission system, new ways to play your favorite game modes—from Private Queues to shorter Competitive matches—and more! Complete your weekly missions and choose from a variety of rewards including new agents, weapon collections, stickers, and patches.
Operation Riptide features new ways to play your favorite game modes. From short competitive matches to team deathmatch, there's something for everyone!
The best offense is a good defense. Give your teammates a fighting chance with the Riot Shield, currently available as a heavy weapon for CTs in casual hostage maps.
Want a competitive ruleset but don't have the time for a longer match? With short matches, you'll get the competitive 5v5 experience compressed into a best of 16 rounds match, which lasts about 25 minutes.
Sometimes you just need targets to shoot. In Free-For-All Deathmatch, even your teammates are enemies. Watch your back!
Work together to be the first team to 100 kills.
The only thing better than learning utility is learning how to share. Grenades can now be dropped in most game modes.
Weapons - The M4A1-S now does more damage to the body, and the Deagle does a bit less. And if you're in the market for Dualies, they just got cheaper.
Map Changes - Blocked visibility of mid from T spawn in Dust 2. Really!
Demolition and Arms Race - Demolition has gotten a tune-up to be a bit more fast-paced, and the Arms Race weapon sequence has been tweaked (and you'll get health pens if you're on a roll). Check them out!
What do I get with the Operation pass?
Players who purchase an Operation Riptide Pass receive the following:
How do I get Operation Stars?
Operation Stars are earned by completing missions on your weekly mission card, and can also be purchased in-game. Each mission card allows players to earn a maximum number of stars, shown at the top of each card. You do not have to complete all of the missions to earn the maximum number of stars each week.
How do I redeem Operation rewards?
Operation Rewards can be redeemed when you earn or purchase enough stars to meet a reward’s requirement. Once you have stars, visit the Operation Shop in-game and claim the reward you would like.
How do I upgrade my Operation Coin?
To upgrade your Riptide coin, earn stars by completing missions from weekly mission cards. Your coin will upgrade after earning 33 (Silver), 66 (Gold), or 100 stars (Diamond).
Is there a limit to the number of rewards I can redeem?
No. You can continue to redeem Operation rewards as long as you have stars. Even if you have earned the maximum number of stars from completing weekly missions, you can continue to redeem rewards by purchasing stars.
Can I play the missions without a pass?
To play missions you need to either have Prime Status or an Operation Pass. In order to be eligible for Operation rewards you must have an Operation Pass redeemed on your account. If you purchase the Operation Pass at a later date, you will be given credit for any missions you have previously completed and any progress toward upgrading your Operation Coin.
Can I gift Operation Passes?
Operation Passes can be traded one one week after purchase. There is no way to send an Operation Pass as a gift at time of purchase.
How do I participate in missions?
If you have Prime Status or the Operation Pass, simply click the mission text from the Main Menu; you will automatically queue for the selected mission. If you do not have Prime Status or the Operation Pass, you cannot complete missions.
How long does Operation Riptide last?
Operation Riptide will last until February 20th, 2022. Players will receive new missions cards each week for the first 16 weeks of the operation.
